Yes, please! Besides bootstrapping, use cases do include derived
distributions, such as no SELinux in Univention 2.x (FSVO x which
are not current) which jupp depended on as it can make use of it,
or mksh losing dietlibc-dev in *buntu since move from universe to
main, thus requiring a one-line change for every upload…

FWIW, I'm quite impressed with mksh interactively. I thought it was much
*much* more bare bones. But it turns out it beats the living hell out of
ksh93 in that respect. I'd even consider it for my daily use if I hadn't
wasted half my life on my zsh setup. :-) -- Frank Terbeck in #!/bin/mksh
